The Coins of Alexander

Alexander the Great, son of Philip II, king of Macedon, was one of the most successful generals in all of history. Undefeated in battle, Alexander spread his empire across Persia, Asia Minor, Egypt and Syria. In conquering these areas, Alexander created Hellenistic culture, blending Asian and European lifestyles. Throughout his empire, the young conqueror issued distinct bronze, silver and gold coins.
